Funny story re- mothers day

Because I am incapacitated, I couldn't arrange anything for mothers day. I was supposed to get the brace of last Wednesday and had planned that I would then go out and buy something for the boys to give their mum. Doctors screwed up my plans so I couldn't get out to the shops. It was to late to order anything online. The only option left for for me to get the wife to buy something for herself without telling the boys. I then gave it to the boys so they could then 'surprise' their mother with a mothers day present. :grn

It worked. Boys were happy and wife was adequately surprised . :bgrin :bgrin

Chinese lady living in the house next to us came to visit. I saw her through the lounge window and told Mum “Your other daughter is here.” And she was with a pot with some tulips growing in it. Lovely people.

Thanks guys :bgrin
I was remembering one particular Mother’s Day, my son and former partner bought me what looked like a wrapped brick!
It was heavy like one too!

I opening, and it’s a bloody iron!
Looking puzzled (Coz I clearly didn’t need one) they admit, they had used my iron and it fell off the iron board and broke!
Oh so.... this was a replacement aka mother’s day present!
:roll
Funny kids.

Anyway, I’m going to have a belated Mother’s Day celebration once restrictions are lifted.
In the meantime, I love this pic sent to my messenger that son and his wife did (they celebrated on their own) of a cheese and wine board (picture is too high mp to post?) oh well will post later.
Plus with effort, my son found a photo of he and I together, in the shade of a pit tent up on Gold Coast where he raced recently. With words “Happy Mother’s Day! My number 1 fan!”
I like all the creative effort this isolation is doing!

I am slowly accumulating a collection of irons through (recent) history: irons meant to go into the fire to heat up, irons to hold hot coals above the bit in contact with the clothes. I want one with a tank of methylated spirits that fed a burner that kept the iron hot. These last are expensive ($80 or so) so have not bought one yet.

Maybe Lady Lols can give me an answer: I have a small solid iron—with a CURVED base! What would that have been used for??? Collars?

Once I have a metho iron I will be looking for an early electric and a bit more modern electric iron. I could have a display item: popular iron of the 21st century—and have nothing there :rofl

Lols' story reminded me of this.

A curved one?
Would not have a clue. I would guess some specialised iron work. Probably from a factory where it specifically targets certain parts of clothing?
Put up a pic of it if you can.

OK.

I just think it is <something> to make a collection of irons when they are hardly ever used these days :bgrin

By all means, I have a couple like the picture JS put up, belonged to my mum.
How that fkn idiot of my brother never threw them out is a miracle.
I’m thinkink lately, making a police report or charge against him for stealing and destroying mums stuff when it was left to me in the will.
He gets the fkn house (in fact 2 houses including the old farm house) in 3 acres. And the stuff is stolen from me.

I have not heard from my solicitor in over a month!
Are lawyers in lock down???

This will is still unsettled as we put a stop to it until things are sorted out.

Any wonder I have aged in this past year, my internal anger does not help.
